(this podcast has not been edited!)
Hi there Retro gaming fans,welcome back to another episode of 1HMPS Retro, todays your hosts are Andy,Glenn,Swainy and Malc (Tony couldnt make this episode as he was looking after his little boy)

in this episode I just wanted to let you all know that this is my last podcast and that I will also be leaving the site too and stop making video reviews too.

(All my reason are explained on the podcast but I thought I would blog about it hear too.)

I thought I'd owe it to everyone and tell you the reason behind me leaving.

The main thing is I want to concentrate more time with my wife and my kids as podcasting really does take up a lot of time and time is something I really havent got anymore since I do shift work.

Now I did think about taking a back step, which is why Tony edited the last podcast but that one week I had off made me realise how much I needed to give it all up.

Now please dont get me wrong I really enjoyed podcasting every week and I have made some amazing friends the co hosts,the communtiy but the truth of the matter is I need to move on from the site and podcast and do other things in my spare time.

Another reason I have had to give up the podcast is financial reasons, the podcast was costing me around £26-28 a month and I always struggled to pay that on a monthly basis and it also got me thinking that, that money could have gone into something else, maybe toward a holiday for me and my Mrs or maybe into a savings account for my kids.

But I think the main reason is that I just lost the passion for it, it became hard work and something I dreaded doing, it became a bit of a obsession I was always trying to out do the previous podcast and try get the audio just right.

I just wanted to clarify that I will not be shutting down the site and that I will continue to pay the yearly site hosting fee's, the site will carry one with the other members of the team and the community.

Just wanted to thanks the 1HMPS Retro team, who I consider friends(and i will continue to chat to and meet up with)

you guys were the best and still are and I couldn't of done any of this with out there help and support.

Big thanks to all our forum members who have been fantastic and extremely supportive

and thanks to all our listeners who have who have listened to us on a weekly basis and big thanks to all our special guest on the podcast.

I'm hoping that the site will keep going and getting better and stronger.

Thanks everyone its been a right blast and one hell of a ride and Ive enjoyed every single moment here on the site but its time for me to concentrate on my family 100%

cheers guys and please stay in touch
